Fall 2016 Mistra Future Fashion had an open call for new ideas that contribute to a systemic change of the fashion industry, making it circular and more sustainable. Key prioritised areas were 'Digitalisation', 'Implementation' and 'Scale-up of Services'. Many applications were submitted covering wide spread of ideas relevant for the textile and fashion value chain and sent from many different continents. It was a proposal on on/off dyeing from Chalmers that got granted and is now currently being integrated into the research programme.
The project involves both inkjet-dyeing, with a certain pigment, and the specific garment can be decoloured with this specific technology. Fast fashion cycles and customisation put a high stress on flexibility of raw materials, contradicting however with the demand for extended material life times by reuse and recycling. This project aims at developing a jet-able ink that can be removed on-demand.
The ink will be developed in order to be jetted by domestic inkjet-printer (rheology and surface tension), using surfactant technology which is based on commercially available systems. (RR)
